I visited our previous local garden centre and I'm pleased to say Annie it is full of hydrangeas ready for planting in the garden and as I know how much you love and must be missing them now I took these pictures especially for you.
The garden centres in the UK are pretty much like the ones I've seen in the UK, Dubai and Canada this year. It's only in the UK thought that I've seen garden centres with educational rooms for children and play areas, but maybe that's because it's the only place I go with my niece to notice them.
Unlike the UK, most of the garden centres in South Africa are outdoors, due to the weather. In Dubai they are also mainly indoors due to the heat and the UK due to the rain and cold.
They all sell plants, garden furnitures, usually contain a small gift shop at the exit and occasionally a tea room.
I've also been visiting as many tea rooms as I can fit in on my travels and almost every tea room I've been to is situated in lovely gardens with local craft shops which sell a variety of items including garden ornaments and plants.
Believed to be the most Southern Baobab tree. According to internet research that honour belongs to Bushbuckridge which is 150km further north than where I was standing to take this picture.
